Among the various scientific designations there is "oncini" and looking at the inflorescence I realize the name must be associated to a particular kind of South American feline, "onça" ( also named "Jaguar" ) that has a fur with just those spots. In English I remember references to 'ouncelot'.
Onça - Panthera onca
Classe: Mammalia; ordem: Carnivora; família: Felidae; gênero: Panthera
